A focused shot of the inside of the halo's front fairing and a blurred pitlane are not the most dramatic first glimpses of a major Formula 1 breakthrough. Nor are the faces of a few Haas team members, or the casual slap of another's private area with a pair of gloves.
F1's use of a video camera in a pair of glasses earlier this year, with Pierre Gasly and Romain Grosjean, reignited a desire to give onboard, driver's eye footage to grand prix fans. It's raw, it's shaky, it's real and it gives an impression of speed and difficulty that is impossible to recreate with modern, ultra-stable and high-definition mounted cameras.
It's also not new to anybody who has a vague understanding of IndyCar coverage. IndyCar's been rolling out helmet camera footage for years - and not just for social media hits, it's incorporated into its live race coverage. But the F1 glasses idea has been dropped.
